    While the thought is fun, it is too big a liability to even consider.

    I was at K-mart a couple of days ago and a kid went zipping by, a little time passed the kid came back and hit the concrete floor hard. While the K-mart staff and the kids parents talked of going to the hospital for X-rays and the L distal forearm was turning red....still another kid went zipping past.

    I am getting more fragile too.

    I love it! Could you imagine how much more efficient we would all be sailing down the halls? And what a back-saver!! Not to mention comic relief for patients and families!

    Well that was my first thought when I saw them.....then the kid just clicked the wheels back into this little hidden pocket, and they were like regular shoes again.
    I saw a kid wearing them for the first time tonight. At first I thought I was hallucinating--did I or didn't I see him sliding down the hall just now? When he's not skating they look like ordinary shoes.

    Since I gave myself a concussion the one and ONLY time I ever rollerbladed, I think it would be a very bad idea for me......:selfbonk:

    Heck no. I'm not sure when it happened, but I have to watch the ground to walk without falling. Just call me grace!

    I agree, maybe nurse mates could come up with something. I wounder if Preperation H could come up with something that could make bending over a taking it from admin a little easier. (HA). We could go on for hours thinking of such things to make our jobs easier.
